Greetings From CT Wine Authority!

We are pleased to feature two new exciting French wines.  After a recent tasting we knew these exceptionally valued wines would be a perfect addition to our inventory and we think you'll agree with our palates!  Of course we welcome our customers to stop by either of our locations this Saturday for a free sample so you can judge for yourself.

Saint Cosme "Little James' Basket Press" Vin de Table
is a non-vintage red wine comprised of 100% Grenache.  Grenache is the main grape in many Rhone blends, most Cotes du Rhone and Chateaunuef-du-Pape.  This wine is bottled unfiltered and sold as a non-vintage wine due to the blending of wines from different origins prior to bottling.  The grapes for this wine come from the Rhone region and other areas in southern France therefore making it a table wine with a heavy emphasis on Southern Rhone quality.  Winemaker Louis Barruol is known for his Chateauneuf-du-Pape and the Gigondas made in his home town.  He enjoys the freedom of making a 100% Grenache outside any appellation's restrictive regulations.  This quality French red would be a great addition to any table at the affordable price of  $11.99/bottle.
 
 
André-Michel Brégeon 2008 Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie is a terrific white from the Loire Valley of France.  Muscadet originates from the grape Melon de Bourgogne and is a classic seafood wine that pairs best with oysters.  It's no coincidence that Muscadet is a classic seafood wine, as it's grown and made in the Nantais region, where the Loire River runs into the cold Atlantic.  We think this French white is an exceptional find at $14.99/bottle and a perfect pairing for your next seafood dinner.



Featured Wines:

Little James' Basket Press 2009 750ML
Little James' Basket Press NV 750ML
sku: 13289

At Saint Cosme, Little James is the wine of freedom. Unlike a vintage wine, it's a permanent creation of a solera which gets more and more complex every year with irresistible crunchy fruit.

The spirit of this wine is to be very simple, uncomplicated and inexpensive, but to give a great deal of pleasure. The wine is very spicy, with loads of sweet fruit and liquorice, and is perfect with simple meals.more

Suggested Price: $12.99
Our Price: $11.99

Domaine Michel Bregeon Muscadet 2008 750ML  
sku: 13411

A very special style of wine, which can be sweet or dry, further complexity is bestowed on the wine through the sur lie method.  The wine is not filtered while being aged and the residue left in the aging cask adds both body and creaminess to the wine.

Tasting Notes: Complex nose with citrusy hints, medium body with smooth viscosity complemented by citrus fruit flavors and mineral notes. Creamy and honeyed but a crisp, dryer style with good acidity and a long finish.
